    So yesterday I bought my first tundra 2003 ac 4x4 and it drives amazing but once I hit about 50-60mph the steering wheel vibrates considerably.

    Jack it up and check the tightness of all the different parts in the front end. Given you said the shake is in the steering wheel, we know it’s likely up front.

    Rock the drivers and passenger from tires up and down, and side to side.
    if you feel play up and down, likely ball joints or wheel bearings.

    If you feel play side to side, it’s probably tie rod ends or wheel bearing.

    start there and report back.

    Wheel balance to rule that out. Preferably road forced.

    Since its speed based, it's very likely a tire balance issue rather than ball joint or tie rod, so start with that.
